The Best Advice I’ve Been Given as a Nurse

peanuts-blogging-advice-770x433Someone recently asked me what was the best advice I’d ever gotten as a nurse. I had to really think about this. As someone who tries to learn from everyone around her, I can think of so many good pieces of advice I’ve been given throughout the years. But here is the best advice I’ve ever been told…

  1. Hi! I love your blog and hope to be you when I grow up (although I’m 27) lol. I will be starting nursing school this fall and hope to work in L&D. How, in situations like your article, do you advocate for your client when you know that a section is uncalled for at the time?

  2. One of the nurses I worked with years ago was in labor herself. The Dr came in about dinner time and told her she needed a section for “failure to progress”. The nurse/patient replied,” no I don’t think so. 1/2 cm is progress, the baby looks good and I’m fine, we’ll wait.” She delivered vaginally and was fine. Her opinion carried more weight than anyone else’s. Lol

  3. The best advice (more like fear….): In nursing school you learn how to not kill someone on purpose, in real life you have to learn to kill someone by accident.

    I’m an ICU nurse but I love the L&D world as well and I think this could work with either specialty. Critical thinking is something you have learn and keep growing at!
